We’re always there for the team but we don’t do it all for them. Part of the value of our expeditions is in the interaction the team has in putting their itinerary together. So, the team decides where to go, what to do and how much of a physical challenge or what high-impact community or conservation project to take on. It’s all part of the fun!
We insist our whole team knows our School Leaders personally and our destinations intimately.
We maximise learning outcomes from your students’ expedition through half termly meetings to help them prepare and fundraise.
We make expeditions as affordable as possible to maximise student participation.
We partner with unique and sustainable projects to ensure every expedition has a genuine impact.
We believe students and teachers should be able to tailor their itinerary.
We empower the True Adventure team to be decision makers so you can get answers quickly.
Ensuring maximum learning outcomes from the whole expedition process and also suitable team preparedness doesn’t happen overnight. In fact it typically takes about 18 months! Our team facilitates the whole process, taking the burden off school staff while ensuring the itinerary is affordable, practicable and highly enjoyable.

While we fully appreciate that fundraising for an expedition is never going to be an easy task, it is achievable and it is a highly educational and satisfying experience in the end.
Each team member is given online access to their private expedition portal, My True Adventure, which holds their personal details such as payments, passport details, medical information and expedition specific information. This means that team members can upload and update their details in real time, saving School Leaders considerable time.
In your Expedition Portal, you will find a range of supporting documents and links to websites to help fundraising, in addition to a series of case studies from Venturers who have been there and got the t-shirt.

We love to chat about expeditions over a cuppa! We're happy to visit you to discuss your expedition aspirations or via phone if you're short on time.
Announcing an expedition to the school is always exciting. We present to students in assembly then a week or so later to parents after school.
Unlike typical school trips, we collect all applications and payments directly, reducing admin time for teachers.
